Security is Vital – D8

PSN-Washington

President Goodluck Jonathan returned to Abuja after two days with World leaders of the group of eight developing countries meeting in Pakistan. 

Due to large Muslim populations in the group, security and the role of extreme militant groups was a vital subject in the meeting. The gathering began just hours after the Taliban admitted killing several Shi’ites in a series of bombings. 

The summit in Islamabad was attended by Iran, Egypt, Turkey, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nigeria and Bangladesh to discuss trade and forging closer economic ties. 

Hardline Sunni militant groups have recently stepped up attacks against Pakistan’s minority Shi’ites whom they regard as non-Muslims. 

Two other bomb blasts killed at least three people during another Shi’ite gathering in Karachi. 

Meanwhile President Jonathan also transferred the leadership of the group to Asif Zardari of Pakistan, after being the leader since 2010. 

The summit deliberated on the theme Democratic Partnership for Peace and Prosperity’’ and endorsed the D-8 Charter and the D-8 Global Vision. 

PSN gathered that the President also held bilateral discussions with Egypt, Iran and Pakistan and also met with Nigerians living in Pakistan
